WRITING 2015
This year a greater focus on the progress children make throughout
the school year, as opposed to a test-day snapshot of what they know.
DfE Guidance:- TA provides a rounded judgement that:
•
is based on knowledge of how the pupil has performed over time and in a
variety of contexts
• takes into account strengths and weaknesses of the pupil’s performance
• Teachers will assess children’s writing composition. Children’s results
for English writing will be a judgement of their work throughout Year 6.
• Children's grammar, punctuation and spelling skills will be assessed as
part of their writing, but their creativity and writing style will also be
evaluated.
• Schools will moderate their judgements with other local schools and may
be moderated by their Local Authorities too.

DfE guidelines are as follows:-

LEVEL 5c, 5b, 5a
Above the Nationally Expected level for a pupil at the end of Year 6
LEVEL 6 – Key Stage 3 Expectations
REMEMBER – ALL CHILDREN ARE DIFFERENT
REPORTING RESULTS
• Children’s progress, as well as their achievement, will
be measured and reported on in school performance
tables.
• Teacher assessments will be passed on to secondary
schools so they can be used in planning for Year 7
teaching.
• The test results are available in July.
• Written reports are given at the end of the summer
term along with your child’s results.
HELPING AT HOME
• Try not to put pressure on your child.
• Support with homework and targets that have been
discussed at Parents Evening.
• Read regularly and discuss a variety of texts – not just
‘listening’ to your child read.
• Short bursts of mental maths, times tables and problem
solving etc.
• Use the previous test papers only if advised by school as
they are used in school as assessment and practise for
the children. Using the same papers at home makes it
difficult to prepare the children adequately.
WE RECOMMEND:Early nights and lots of sleep
Good attendance
Good punctuality
A good breakfast
LOTS OF PRAISE AND
ENCOURAGEMENT!
